LIBRARY ACCOUNTS AND BORROWING
Library Card Password/PIN
You will need a password/PIN to access your library account online and to download digital media with Overdrive Download Destination. This number should be between 4-8 digits long. If you don’t already have a password or have forgotten yours, you can add one anytime in person at the Circulation Desk. If you already know your password and want to change it, you can log in to your account and go to the My Record tab to change it.
Saline District Library patrons may place a request for an item in the library’s catalog using their library barcode number and password. Please be aware that “available” items may be checked out before staff is able to fill requests. Items will be returned to the shelf if not picked up in 4 days.
If you would like to have a record of all the items you check out maintained on your library account, log in to your account and go to the Reading History tab. Click on Change Preferences and check the box to begin maintaining a permanent reading list. Please note that library staff are unable to access your permanent reading list.
